About us

Hi. We're Hooray for Our Side, or H4OS for short. In some form or another, H4OS has been writing, recording and performing since 2010. Our music is rooted in ska and punk, but we like to throw in tinges of soul, funk, garage rock, and jazz too. At seven members strong, we're lucky when we fit on any given stage.

If you've been in the Orange County scene for awhile, perhaps you've seen us. H4OS has shared the bill with acts like Fishbone, The Interrupters, Less Than Jake, Suburban Legends, The Aggrolites, The Toasters, and Chris Murray.

We've put out two releases so far, our self-titled EP in 2013 and our first full-length, Overture, at the beginning of 2016. Now we're ready to put out our third.

H4OS is ready for Phase III. (*Artwork not final.)

About the project

We're finally putting together our next release – a new EP anchored by six entirely new original songs & more.

We'll be spending several weeks in the studio this summer to record these new songs for you. Your contribution to the project will help us cover our studio time, mixing, mastering, pressing, shipping and digital distribution costs.

We're keeping it simple this time around when it comes to crowdfunding.  How you choose to help is entirely up to you. You can do so much as simply pre-order the digital copy of the EP, get your hands on our entire catalog of music, or even have us come straight to your house and put on a show right then and there. Anything helps – which is why we're keeping our goal open-ended by setting a "$10" target. 

And to those of you who contributed $15 or more to the crowdfunding effort for our last album, you're already going to be receiving the digital download of the new EP for free! You're absolutely welcome to contribute to this project nevertheless.

We thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges

As of the launch of this Kickstarter campaign, we have almost enough funds to cover the cost of recording sessions. However, the costs of mixing, mastering, pressing, digital distribution and promotion are currently out of reach.

The better our Kickstarter fares, the better the final product.
